Dyemansion’s 3D printing post-processing technology is to be distributed throughout the UK by Europac3D.
The agreement will see Europac3D offer the full range of DyeMansion machines to the UK market, becoming the second UK reseller of DyeMansion technology after Matsuura.
DyeMansion has introduced a series of machines through the ‘Print –to-Product’ portfolio, which offer blasting, colouring and surface finishing capabilities respectively.
PowerShot C is the blasting system which automatically removes excess powder from printed parts in a process that takes around ten minutes. The DM60 is the industrial colouring platform, whereby powder bed fusion-produced parts in raw white material can be dyed using the 17 standard DyeMansion colours, the RAL/ Pantone colours, or customised or corporate colour options. This process takes two hours to dye the parts, and once completed the system is automatically drained, meaning the parts can be removed and used immediately. Meanwhile, the Powershot S harnesses PolyShot Surfacing technology to give parts a homogenous finish, transforming porous and potentially vulnerable plastics into finished products with improve surface quality and consistent distribution of colour.
By partnering with Europac3D, DyeMansion is to have access to the distributor’s network of customers in a key market.
“Our vision is to turn industrial 3D printed parts into high-value finished products. Our three-step ‘Print-to-Product workflow enables scaling from prototyping to short run manufacturing and thus closes the manufacturing gap,” commented Felix Ewald, CEO and Founder of DyeMansion. “We are delighted to be partnering with Europac3D who are a proven and trusted player in the industry and can help us deliver a first-class customer experience to DyeMansion customers in the UK.”
“DyeMansion’s post-production systems are world class and add the all-important finish to additive manufacturing,” added John Beckett, Managing Director of Europac3D. “Their systems are perfect for companies or 3D print bureaus that have multiple SLS or HP 3D printers and allow us to extend our offer by providing market leading additive manufacturing finishing systems for 3D printed polymer parts.”
